The Social Economy Alliance is a new voice on the economy. More than twenty respected social enterprises, co-operatives, universities, housing associations, crowd-funders, social investors, think tanks and charities have come together to help shape political policy that’s better for the economy and society as a whole.

Its aim is to radically affect the way all political parties formulate social and economic policies in advance of the 2015 General Election. Its policies are designed to put power in the hands of people, foster bottom-up economic growth and take advantage of the many innovations that the UK’s social sector has created.
